Natsume Inc. will be taking their beloved Harvest Moon franchise to the downloadable world today. Harvest Moon: My Little Shop will be available for 1200 Nintendo points ($12) on your little Wii Shop channels (saw what I did there?). The game will not be your typical Harvest Moon game, but it will still feature plenty of farming! Here’s the twist, after farming you get to sell your agriculture in your shop. Natsume explains it best:
“In Harvest Moon: My Little Shop, you’ve just taken over your grandparents’ farm and shop in Clover Town. You’ll raise crops and animals, then use what you farm at your shop! Keep your customers happy by making wild fruit juices, towering ice cream cones, and extravagantly decorated eggs in a series of fun and fast-paced activities that use the Wii Remote to its fullest potential. Chop vegetables in midair, shake your Wii Remote to match your cow’s moves, roll eggs through tilting mazes, and more! Use your hard-earned money to buy new crops and animals, and expand and decorate your shop. Along the way, you’ll meet and befriend lots of new and interesting characters, as well as more than a few familiar faces from the Harvest Moon series!”
It’s Wii download Monday, so expect the title to be up for download by the time you read this.
